the reality of a paul ryan budget which is nothing more than a rehash of the failed agenda that the american people have already rejected. the republican budget continues to push harsh and unnecessary budget cuts that eliminate the safety net for millions of middle class americans. the american people don't want a budget that break ours promises to seniors by turning medicare into a voucher program or cuts investments that support job creation just for the sake of more budget busting tax cuts for the wealthiest taxpayers and corporations. yet my friends on the other side my friends continue pushing this approach in the name of deficit reduction, but their own leadership admitted we don't have a debt crisis in the country. the architect, congressman paul ryan, said we don't have a debt crisis. speaker boehner said it's not an immediate problem. why should we enact this budget while democrats have a balanced approach to protect the middle class. why should we pass a budget that gets 66% of its cuts from programs for people of low or moderate income. why should we pass a budget that cuts pell g

to see paul ryan defund "obamacare." our economy cannot afford it. it must be every conservative's mission to defund it and move away from socialized medicine before it is implemented. 2013 is a challenge. let can to canton andit must be a year where we wage attack against and those forces in the republican establishment that hijacked the conservative movement. we must not rest. as conservatives, we all believe america is an exceptional nation. we do not want our beloved nation to have the financial books of greece or the gun laws of china. waynds, i fear that is the we are headed. president obama and his left- wing liberals -- the media is in the bag for this administration, and we all know it, which is why the grass roots of our movement must not sit on the sidelines. you must redouble your efforts and together we must fight those who want to sell out our principles. remember reagan's three pillars of conservatism -- free enterprise, strong national defense, and per-family social policies. we must not cede these principles to president obama on one hand, or the republican estab

a chance really to see firsthand the rolling out of what we call the ryan budget. paul ryan as the chairman of our budget committee once again leads, i believe, the intellectual and thought process on talking about the future that we should have in this country. certainly the budget is that primer, that guiding post, that opportunity for us to lay out a philosophy about what republicans stand for, and today the american people are having a chance to hear from our colleagues, the democrats. of course as you listen to our colleagues, our friends, the democrats talk, everything about a budget is all about if you're a republican, us harming the middle class, us ruining the country, headed in the wrong direction. that is because they have taken the simple approach to they will try and fund everything. they will try and fund hospitals. they will fund airports. they will fund schools. they will do all these amazing things. and the facts of the case are is that that process and that future does not work. paul ryan yesterday, before the rules committee, very carefully, argued the point that really i

to talk about the misguided priorities laid out in the republican budget as presented by chairman paul ryan. once again chirme ryan has proposed a budget that guts low-income program. the ryan budget not only does not end hunger now, it actually makes hunger in america worse than it is today. simply put, mr. speaker, we are currently not doing enough to end hunger now. there are over 50 million hungry americans in this country, 17 million are kids. over 47 million rely on snap, formerly known as food stamps, to put today food on their tables. without this program, real hunger, the actual absence of food, would be actually worse. the great recession is the primary reason hunger is so bad today. now, don't get me wrong, hunger has been getting worse since the presidency of ronald reagan. we almost eradicated hunger in america in the late 1970's, but hunger has been getting steadily worse in the decades since. but the great recession, the worst economic period we've faced since the great depression, resulted in millions more people hungry. millions of people who had to turn to snap as the
overhaul. senator paul gave a speech not long ago outlining what he thinks should be done. where do you stand on these so-called pathway to citizenship question in the broader immigration debates that's going on these days? >> i don't think you're going to get a comprehensive immigration bill until you can satisfy the american public that we have a way of knowing our border is secure. and our border is not secure. and so you can have that discussion about all those other things but you are never going to get the vote until you can demonstrate and certify that we have secured a border. >> how would you go about putting the resources on the border needed to demonstrate the sort of security that you think the american people would need in order to get an immigration bill done? >> well, i actually have spent several days some of it on horse back on the arizona border. i've spent a lot of time on our borders. and if the american people went -- our strategy today is to cause funneling of those that are trying to come across illegally and those that are trying to bring drugs in illegally. we'r
party that i think will be helpful. if you look at marco rubio, paul ryan, kelly ayotte, some of our governors from a clear generational shift going on in the republican party moving forward, democrats may want to reach back. kasich's numbers have been rising dramatically, where he is certainly not upside down. his numbers are rising. i am certain he's not upside down. i am certain you will see that with some of these other governors as well. >> i have a couple minutes for last questions, and we will try to have swift answers. >> now that the elections are over, we really need government to work for us. as political strategists, is there a chance that compromise can be commendable -- can compromise be commendable and not an election year liability? >> i work for ronald reagan. he compromised on everything. we had a democratic house with a huge majority. he had to. the real divided government can work. ronald reagan proved it could work. clinton proved it could work. those are guys who got huge legislation enacted. the reagan economic plan, immigration reform, social security reform -
wilson was in the white house. good morning, paul. caller: respectfully miss the point. i think your answer on fox is disingenuous. their regular reporting is skewed. do you think it helps when this administration invites in reporters from across the country to do interviews? do you look upon that with disdain? guest: i don't disdain it at all. it is helpful to local reporters and their stations. it is not at all helpful to the process of newscasting that we do. it is another way for the white house to get the president out there, to have him seen by a lot of people, particularly in key markets. if you looks at the statements, you -- if you look at the statements, it will be in key districts where they are trying to get the member of congress to say something, to vote a certain way. it is all very carefully planned. i don't think it gives those local reporters a chaps to ask questions that are of interest mainly to their own audience. i don't think the white house should crow about how much media experience or exposure the rpt has give -- given, when it goes not so much to the rest o
issue of fairness. that is why it should be put right. >> unlike the honorable member paul shipley, i am very proud of our coalition for sticking to the 0.7% target. [shouting] >> the honorable ladies question must be heard. people should not year before they ar heard. >> later on this month the prime minister goes on to cochair the high-level panel on development goals. will he use his leadership to press for a standalone goal on a gender equality and women's empowerment? >> i will look very carefully at what the honorable lady says --ut the importance of just gender equality in terms of new millennium development goals. the point i would make to anyone who raises the issue about our commitment -- i do not think we should break our promises to the poorest people in the world. when you think about it, our key goal ought to be to eradicate the extreme poverty people sometimes still face, living on less than 1.25 a day. that is what we are talking about. we should be proud we are keeping our promises. >> after money savings hit on budget day and in line with what the education secretary on
of presidential news conferences beginning in formally beginning in 1913. we have paul on the line. good morning. caller: my question is, do you all think it is helpful when this administration and by its local reporters from across the country to do interviews or do you look upon that with the stain?-- disdain? guest: i do not disdain it at all. it is not helpful to the process. it is another way for the white house to get the president out there, have him seen by a lot of people, particularly markets. if you look at and use their traditionally in key congressional districts. they credit the local members of congress to try to change something, to vote a certain way. it is all very carefully egrudge theo not bn local reporters. i do not think the white house should crow about how much media experience the president has given. when it gets not so much to the rest of us. host: from louisville, kentucky, good morning. caller: i am generally curious as to what happens in an off the record conversation. what does that mean his starkly? -- historically? what does it mean now? host: good question. gue

and paul ryan and scott walker and many others i.i'm on got to keep going but you get the idea. we have great hispanic leaders like ryan sandoval and ted cruz and others. i think we have done a real lousy job sometimes of bragging about the success that we have had. so i think when it comes to youth and diversity we've made great strides. i think we'll have a lot of options in 2016. >> as you hope to reach out to the african-american community, what are your thoughts on ensuring every vote counts? rights?es of voting >> we're not going to bore you with the details in the consent decree in the republican national committee. but we believe that we need to make it easy to vote in hard to cheat. i think that can capture we believe in as a party. it should be easy for anyone to hard to cheat. that is something we have endeavored to do. as a national party, we do have some restrictions on ballot through theyou know new jersey consent decree. cpac lastn about a week where a panel on african-american voters a shouting match with at least one activist saying -- hard to read the question -- talki

make the case -- i am much more libertarian, i guess, which is why i am excited to see what brand paul is doing in terms of redirecting -- rand paul is doing in terms of redirect recover station. we create this inherent conflict by saying that we are for individual liberties and freedoms and the ability to make choices in your life, but on the other hand we will limit that when it comes to these issues. that becomes a very unfortunate slippery slope for us. think we need to be less of a religious party, which some have painted us into that particular corner, and more of a pragmatic political party that understands fundamentally that our rights are vested in us by the constitution and that is the first line of defense and opportunity that every citizen should have and everything flows from that. it does not mean that those social issues are less important, they're not, but that is why my pastor on sunday talks to me about those issues. i bring those lessons of morality into my life and my politics and i get to make individual decisions and choices on how i implement and execute that. fr
by budget chairman paul ryan. the speaker pro tempore: pursuant to the order of the house of january 3, 2013, the chair will now recognize members from lists submitted by the majority and minority leaders for morning hour debate. the chair will alternate recognition between the parties with each party limited to one hour and each member other than the majority and minority leaders and the minority whip each, to five minutes but in no event shall debate continue beyond 11:50 a.m. the chair recognizes the gentleman from illinois, mr. quigley, for five minutes. mr. quigley: thank you, mr. speaker. mr. speaker, i rise today to call for continued reforms to our health care system. the affordable care act was a huge step in the right direction, but we can do more, because the path we're on is unsustainable. the u.s. spends approximately 18% of its g.d.p. on health, close to twice as much as other developed nations and yet we don't have better health care outcomes. health care costs are rising faster than inflation and wages, meaning they are eating a larger portion of americans' paychecks and the
these issues into the normal structural debate inside a place like the senate. if you look at rand paul's filibuster of a week ago, let's remember two things. he was talking about drones, but ask yourself why. what was he filibustering? -- he wast filibustering a nomination. it seems over and over again the only way people can raise these issues inside the senate is to question a nomination, whether it is senator hagel for the a, the confirmation hearing to bring them up, or if you are lucky, to t an amendment on the floor to debate these issues that are really central to our foreign policy, which is what i attempted to do along with senator corker of tennessee with respt to the libya situation. we need to have a full discussion on issues such as drones, and another piece of the drones issue here in the united states -- and this is where i have been aligned in the past with what senator paul, senator lee, and people on the i wouldic side, too -- call libertarians, people who are concerned about individual rights. when you look at the issue of apprehending, taining , iricans on american
. secret generated by huntsville. they went on to say it is a major target. fbi spokesman paul damon said do you believe specific centers targets? what are the targets? >> they are targets and recognize that as a significant threat. we have a program called agent in the lab where we host agents to 17 of the research facilities and laboratories around the united states. they are embedded in research facilities to better understand and address that threat. we also have a national security higher education advisory board. we try to educate the leaders of these universities as to the threats that can occur at our target their research facilities. i would say probably has gotten exacerbated in the realm of digital information and cyber attacks. you no longer have to rely on an individual becoming your asset to gather the secrets in the cyber arena. it is just as easy to have somebody familiar with a cyberworld sitting in shanghai are beijing or some place in russia to attack the networks and export the information. a threat is more substantial than it was 10 or 15 years ago. >> i wrote to you
think we know it is happening. if you look at the youth and our party like marco rubio and paul get and many others, you the idea. we have great hispanic leaders like ted kreuz. i think we have done a real lousy job sometimes of bragging about the success that we have had. when it comes to diversity we have made great strides. i think we'll have a lot of options in 2016. reach out toe to the african-american community, what are your thoughts on insuring every vote counts of? >> we're not going to bore you with the details in the republican national committee. we believe that we need to make it easy to vote in hard to cheat. if that can capture everything that we believe in as a party. it should be hard to cheat. that is something we have endeavored to do. ondo have some restrictions ballot security. questions about cpac where a panel on african-american voters dissolved into a shouting match with at least one activists voters are being systematically disenfranchised. given that backdrop and the party, how do you plan to overcome those challenges? >> for one thing you have to show up
in strong support today of the balanced budget put forward by my friend and chairman paul ryan. and the reasonable and practical approach that this budget committee has taken while they budget hardworking taxpayer dollars. mr. speaker, this budget debate goes deeper than spread sheets and focuses on the longevity of the american dream. today we are considering a republican budget that actually balances in 10 years. calls for pro growth, pro job tax reform -- pro-growth, pro-job tax reform and strengthens medicare for our seniors and future generations. while in the senate harry reid and patty murray are considering a budget that never balances. it increases taxes by $1 trillion and let's medicare and social security race towards bankruptcy. and it turns medicare into a program that rations benefits to seniors. make no mistake, washington is approaching $17 trillion of debt and more than 12 million americans are unable to find work. the decisions we make will either sink us deeper into debt or put us on a path that encourages job creation and restores the belief that if we work
this was the centerpiece of their campaign for the last six months. this was part of what our friend, paul ryan and governor romney, preached from coast to coast, advertised, campaigned, and all of a sudden it was rejected by the american public overwhelmingly. the president was comfortably re-elected and more democratic senators added who support this effort in the house of representatives, not only did we gain seats, but more than a million voters more voted for democrats than republicans. so you would think that this would be put to rest, but it is important for people to know that it is still a viable option as far as our republican friends are concerned. and it's unfortunate, because we are making some progress in reforming the health care system, not by turning our back on medicare, not by transferring the risk and responsibility to seniors and most vulnerable, but by making it more efficient, by taking some of the experiments that we have done in my home state of oregon, and as you well know, there are some health care systems in california that have already found ways to reward value ov
of representatives today. this is a budget by paul ryan that will allow us to get to balance. that means the government will stop sending more money than it takes in by the end of the decade, which is really exciting. what that allows us to do is to get the economy rolling, jobs being created and provide more certainty so young people coming out of college know there is going to be a job in their field. those in the workforce will know they will be needed. those in retirement, social security and medicare and those will be strengthened and security. an exciting time. guest: -- the: when it comes to continued resolution which funds the government through september, did it include sequester cuts that took effect earlier this month? spending atcludes the sequester level. there is flex ability for the military, department of defense and a few other areas that allow money to be moved to areas of greater priority. the house republicans passed to that thest year so across-the-board cuts did not occur in the way they have occurred. we felt there was much greater flexibility. we need to be wiser
